    You don't like the hypocrisy of their so-called 'sincere religious beliefs' being pointed out?

    That's your opinion and nothing more. Hope you will enjoy having SSM legalized. It's people like you whom I toast each time a state recognizes SSM.

    There is no such thing as same sex marriage. It can no more be legalized than square circles.

    Yet those bakers compromise their values for baking cakes for dog weddings and in one case did a pentagram on a cake. Face facts, they compromised their values for money except in the case for a gay wedding.

    They were shown to be the hypocrites they really are, like most bible thumpers that stand on the "holier-than-thou" soapbox.

    Yes, there is. You can continue to stomp your feet and throw a tantrum, but there is AND it is legal. Deal with it.

    Despite this year's breathtaking string of lower court victories, the battle for marriage equality hasn't been swift or easy. To the lawyers who devised the legal strategy decades ago, the journey has been arduous, the setbacks plentiful, and the battle scars deep.

    And even after the high court rules--most likely striking down state bans on gay marriage at the end of its term in June--the fight won't be over. Another clash looms over the issue of religious freedom.

    Read the article here: Gay marriage, once inconceivable, now appears inevitable

    It looks like this battle has reached an important point.I don't believe that the 1st Amendment will stop this from happening.

    Churches will be able to do what they want to do, but businesses will have to obey the law whether they like it or not.
    Businesses should be able to hire whomever they want.

    I don't believe opposition to gay marriage in some cases has anything to do with "bible thumping."

    Some gays are just way too flamboyant for me to tolerate.....

    Not to mention I don't like the fact that some gays think they can just do whatever the hell they want even if it's not socially acceptable just because they're "gay" hence in their mind they're a "protected class."
